BMC moves a step closer to making Hindmata flood­-free

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) F South ward has finalised the contract for the last leg of the three-part storm water drain being constructed at Hindmata junction in Dadar.

The third part of the project comprises constructing up a 920-metre long box drain at SS Rao Road, which runs parallel to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar road (BA Road) and is on a higher gradient. The two roads are 60 metres apart and connected via six arterial roads. During monsoons, water comes gushing down towards Hindmata through these arterial roads owing to the lack of an underground drain at SS Rao Road.
